Mark Wahlberg Leaving Transformers

Earlier this year, Michael Bay indicated that Transformers: The Last Knight would be his farewell to the franchise based on the Hasbro toy sensation. This is something that he’s said several times before, only to get behind the camera again for another sequel, but this time it feels like he’s telling the truth, unless someone comes up with a cool spin-off idea that he can’t resist.

Following in Michael Bay’s footsteps, it appears that one franchise star may also be stepping away from the action spectacle film series. In a recent interview, Mark Wahlberg seems to reveal that he will also be done with Transformers after The Last Knight, though his wording makes it difficult to be definitive on the matter.

Transformers The Last Knight IMAX Featurette - Michael Bay

No matter how much shade gets thrown at Michael Bay, you can’t deny that the director knows how to create big screen spectacle. It may not always come with a coherent story, especially in the Transformers franchise, but the filmmaker uses state of the art tools to create some of the most bombastic blockbuster action that the big screen has ever seen and IMAX helps him make the wild images in his head a reality.

A new Transformers The Last Knight IMAX featurette reveals how Michael Bay shot 98% of his sequel on IMAX 3D cameras, complete with behind-the-scenes footage of the explosions that happened on set as the camera barreled through the action. Watch below! Read More »

Transformers The Last Knight Clip

Since no one really cares about the human characters in the Transformers franchise that much, you might have forgotten that Mark Wahlberg‘s character, named Cade Yaeger, is an inventor. Thankfully, a new clip from Transformers: The Last Knight reminds us of that fact when he’s introduced to a character played by Laura Haddock, an Oxford Professor who just had her first personal experience with a Transformer. Wahlberg gives her a little attitude when he’s forced to explain what he’s invented, and then…we’ll just let you see what happens after that.

Transformers The Last Knight TV Spot

Just when we think we’ve seen enough from Transformers: The Last Knight, another piece of the marketing campaign comes along to unleash even more Bayhem.

From Japan, a new Transformers The Last Knight TV spot shows off a whole lot of new footage from the sequel, including a shot of Bumblebee (seen above) from when he apparently helped defeat the Nazis in World War II. This movie is going to be the most bonkers installment of the Transformers franchise yet.

Transformers The Last Knight Poster

Not too long ago, the marketing campaign for Spider-Man: Homecoming made a bold entry into the running for worst movie poster of the year. But then Transformers: The Last Knight came along and said, “Hold my beer.”

A new poster for Transformers: The Last Knight emerged over the weekend, and it’s quite the Photoshop disaster. It looks like Paramount Pictures hired someone who just learned how to use photo editing software last week, maybe an executive’s niece or nephew who took a break from his YouTube channel for a couple hours. It could very well end up being the worst movie poster of the year.

Transformers The Last Knight Trailer

Last month, Paramount Pictures released what was said to be the final trailer for this summer’s Transformers: The Last Knight. But with a few weeks to go until the sequel from director Michael Bay hits theaters, it should come as no surprise that there was still (at least) one more trailer waiting in the wings.

A new Transformers: The Last Knight trailer has debuted, and while it’s a little shorter than the previous theatrical trailers, it stands out because almost the entirety of the trailer is simply epic shots of action with quiet music. There’s only one line of dialogue at the end from Sir Anthony Hopkins. So if you go to see Transformers movies for the crisp writing, this trailer might disappoint you.

transformers the last knight runtime

Reports of Transformers: The Last Knight‘s lengthy running time have been greatly exaggerated, according to director Michael Bay.

News surfaced yesterday — and on Google’s search results — that the fifth entry into the massive Transformers series would boast an equally massive run time of 3 hours and 2 minutes. People understandably freaked out over having to watch three-plus hours of robots bashing each others’ heads in, but Bay chimed in to assuage their fears and deny those reports.
